I've spent some time searching through the forums (and Google - but many sources are 2+ years old and the paths have changed) to find the locations to set max_files_open for logstash since I'm hitting the 4095 maximum level and could use some guidance on the locations to set this. One post mentioned setting it
- System via limits.conf
- Logstash in init.d
- input-files plugin
I've set it in the limits.conf file to:
logstash - nofile unlimited
But do not have a logstash file in the init.d directory and am unsure where in the inputs-files plugin to set the number.
I'm running Logstash on a CentOS 7 machine with version 6.2.3. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
